Baozhong, an oolong tea also known as Pouchong, is a varietal from Pinglin that dates back to the earliest teas in Taiwan.
We went old school here with the help of a famous tea-competition judge and these are the local expert’s handpicked batch of oolong.
The finish is long, grassy. The smell is of lily and light moss. This tea is an elegant old lady whose story you want to discover.
For our literary types, this tea is you meeting Joan Didion without knowing she is Joan Didion.
